Strong architectural lines govern the range in a stark contrast of black and whites with graphic prints that allow the silhouettes to stand tall. A few casual pieces surfaced by way of chic shorts, sporty shaped tops, pencil skirts and office appropriate dresses. A ladylike flair was conveyed by satin midi skirts and pretty cocktail dresses frilled by tulle and embroidered lace. Boxy blouses and razor-cut skirts, necklines and hems enunciated the structural concept of the collection.
Monique's strong suit is apparent in the series of exquisitely crafted gowns that uplifted the palette in rich poppy red, flamingo pink and fuchsia. Fitted dresses glittered in an intricacy of beadwork, whilst others were beautifully layered in lace and tulle. Drapes, tiered frills and floaty pleated skirts created movement and volume, a long departure from the strict profiles that the collection had to begin with. These are looks we're more likely to see on the red carpet than a resort island.
This is Monique Lhuillier's beguiling vision for Resort 2015 Collection.
